Blah — Spammers Are Scum

Not that it’s news to any­one, I know. But Defen­sio was down this evening (because of an Ama­zon serv­er fail­ure), which meant that all of our sites have been slammed with com­ment spam. They all get hit con­stant­ly, but it’s usu­al­ly a non-issue because Defen­sio fil­ters almost 100% of the crap before we see it. […]

Grrr

The lat­est ver­sion of Word­Press is out, so I upgrad­ed this blog right away, as I usu­al­ly do. Of course, the plu­g­in I use most, Now Read­ing, choked and won’t work any­more.  Le sigh. The prob­lems with the pre­vi­ous “new” WP ver­sion were nev­er tru­ly resolved, and now the author’s forum isn’t work­ing, either. I […]

Amazon Weirdness

I’m tired. I spent entire­ly too much time over the last 48 hours futz­ing with the library part of this site. The soft­ware I use to cre­ate that, Now Read­ing, auto­mat­i­cal­ly pulls images of book cov­ers from Ama­zon when­ev­er I add a book to the library. Ama­zon auto­mat­i­cal­ly sets affil­i­ate links up that way, so they’ve […]

Too Hot!

It’s 90 degrees F out­side now. It was 103 ear­li­er. We’re still in the first week of June. I have no idea what the “effec­tive tem­per­a­ture” (or what­ev­er they call it) is when the humid­i­ty is fac­tored in. Even with month­ly fil­ter changes and win­dow units in both bed­rooms, the air con­di­tion­er just can’t keep up. Unfortunately, […]

Blah

That’s pret­ty much my opin­ion today. Blah. Blah blah blah. I could­n’t wake up enough to dri­ve safe­ly, so I missed an appoint­ment that will take months to resched­ule. For every assign­ment we do in the tech writ­ing course I’m tak­ing, we turn in a rough draft and receive two peer reviews and feed­back from […]

Weekend and School Update

The girl and Sam both had busy week­ends. Katie went out Fri­day and Sat­ur­day, play­ing D&D with friends first, then going to a par­ty with her sweet­ie dur­ing my and Sam’s date Sat­ur­day night. Sam had a com­put­er to deliv­er Sat­ur­day morn­ing, then ran around pick­ing up some things. He went out again yes­ter­day, to […]

Mouse-Mouse and WordPress Oddity

I will not pro­vide a pho­to, but I fig­ure this point­ing device would be all-too pop­u­lar with any felines or canines in your house­hold. I would­n’t ever have imag­ined such a thing if the Instructa­bles peo­ple had­n’t sent out an email plea to who­ev­er abduct­ed Mouse-Mouse from their table at SXSW to please return him. […]
